When you say "weasel", you're insulting a comparatively nice animal.

This is from the just-released deposition of James Allard, who was
responsible for building MS's Internet strategy. The deposition has not
been used in the trial.
DE MORY: Did you have any concerns that the Web might "grow into a
rich application platform in an operating system neutral way" in
May of 1995?
ALLARD: Could you define "Web"?
It gets even better later:
DE MORY: So your testimony is browser is a word that you don't use?
ALLARD: I try not to.
DE MORY: Okay. So we won't use it today. ... Do you have a word that
you use for the graphical user code used for rendering images from
the Web? Is there some short term that we could use to refer to
ALLARD: Internet Explorer.
